It is a fantastic advantage for someone like me, nowehere near a proper library, to have copies of works like this, but the Coptic text reproduced in the book is on most pages is missing at the beginning and end of a line, which makes it impossible to read it properly.
I realize it must be a a difficult job scanning a book as large as this with narrow margins and in what is probably a frail condition. The British Museum should have insisted on producing it two volumes.
I, for one, would be grateful if the book could be rescanned in such a way that all of the Coptic text is readable. Anthony Alcock
